Professional Roof Repair Services for Wind Damage
Your #1 Roof Repair Contractor
Loose roof shingles, loss of shingle granules, roof holes, folded roof shingles, sizable roof cracks and large sections of roof materials blown off merit an immediate roof repair or roof replacement. Wind damage occurs when high velocity winds come against an aging roof or a roof made of 25-year old low class 3-tab type of roof shingles, even if it’s a new one. This type of roof shingles are not as thick as others. So when they start to age and lose their granules and are then exposed to a high velocity wind storm, this type of roof shingles end up folding or tearing off.
As noted, this folding or tearing off of roof shingles can also occur on a new roof, just because of the thinness of material for this type of roof shingles. Poor roofing installation techniques can also be another factor in this. Whatever the reason may be, unfortunate wind damage could be extensive on different, multiple parts of your roof. If there happens to be a whole section of your roof getting torn and blown off by severe winds, then your roof underlayment gets exposed. If the roof underlayment you have is made of paper felt or synthetic felt, this type of roof underlayment then becomes subjected to the weather elements and could possibly be further damaged by the strong winds. When this occurs during a wind and rain storm, then rain water starts to leak through the roof underlayment onto the plywood because the integrity of the roof barrier is gone. This water leak eventually enters into the house, causing further structural damage. For this reason, wind damage on your roof may also qualify for a full roof replacement with your insurance.
We at 1A Roofing and Construction are here to help you determine that and provide you the assistance and services you need to get your roof fixed or replaced, from start to finish. On the other hand, even if it may seem like a minor roof damage at the moment, leaving this kind of roof damage unaddressed could possibly lead to major roof damages and costly repairs. Because no matter how small the affected section of your roof is, this still leaves the under layer of the roof unnecessarily exposed.
